MANILA, Philippines—The physician accused of ordering the opening of President Macapagal-Arroyo’s medical file at Asian Hospital and Medical Center Tuesday denied having done so.

Speaking through her legal counsel, Dr. Maria Niza Bermudez Reyes, an obstetrician-gynecologist who was on duty at the hospital’s Center for Women’s Health (CWH) during the President’s latest confinement there, also blamed the hospital’s “faulty” computer system for the leak on the latter’s breast augmentation procedure in the 1980s.

“The hospital’s computer system is faulty as it doesn’t have a level of security; they do not limit the access of information to specific persons or departments,” said Edwin Lacierda, Reyes’ lawyer and brother-in-law.

Lacierda said doctors at the hospital had “no access to the files or to the computers.”

“They do not have passwords,” he said. “Only the members of the non-medical staff do, and they can open anybody’s files, I mean anybody.”

3 named accused

A source at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) had earlier said three members of the hospital staff, whose statements were taken by the bureau, named Reyes as the one who had ordered them to open Ms Arroyo’s medical file.

    if i am not mistaken, this is the same doctor who said that my then unborn child might be ‘bugok’ when my wife had her 1st ultrasound.

    She even told my wife that we are not paying her enough to explain evrything when we asked some few questions.

    Well, my son is now 1yr old and very healthy. Thanks for her words of ‘encouragement’
